The conclusion of the book is basically that if the Vietnam War was ever winnable, it was no longer winnable after The failure of the LBJ administration and the WWII generation of Army and Air Force officers to understand the true nature of the conflict led to a pointless, protracted war in defense of a hollow, corrupt South Vietnamese regime.

This book is an extensive coverage of the war in Vietnam and includes many of the details of covert actions that were withheld from the American public at the time they were occurring.

At the end of the book there are extensive notes by the author about how he researched the book until it's completion in John Vann was a unique character in the war both as a soldier and an officer and ultimately as a civilian involved in depth with the decision making process at the highest levels.

The Pent This book is an extensive coverage of the war in Vietnam and includes many of the details of covert actions that were withheld from the American public at the time they were occurring.

The Pentagon Papers are a significant source for the book. It seems ironic to me that John Vann and Daniel Ellsberg were friends and close associates.

This book is perhaps the one that covers the war from at the very beginning through its end although John Vann died in a helicopter crash in Vietnam shortly before the US withdrew from Saigon in the notable helicopter flights from the roof of the US Embassy.

The corruption of the Saigon government as well as the corruption and incompetence of the South Vietnamese military is clearly and convincingly portrayed throughout the book.

This is not a book that takes you out into the jungles and battles as so many books do. It is a book that takes you into the homes and buildings of power where the decisions were made that led to the deaths of so many Americans and Vietnamese.

John Vann was always convinced that the US could win. For some reason I thought the strangest part of the Book was the occasions where it focused on John Vanns personal life.

He was a womanizer and a bit of a scum of a man. He was married for 25 years to a woman who put up with his being moral scum. View all 4 comments.

May 16, Rob rated it really liked it. It's surprising that such an idiosyncratic book has become the most popular history on the Vietnam War.

While it offers some historical background, this isn't a general history of the war or of America's involvement in Vietnam.

Some parts of the war are handled in great detail the Battle of Ap Bac , whole periods of the war including its climax in ''69 are glossed over.

What Sheehan gives us the story of John Vann, a remarkably complex man who through sheer force of will and personality pr It's surprising that such an idiosyncratic book has become the most popular history on the Vietnam War.

What Sheehan gives us the story of John Vann, a remarkably complex man who through sheer force of will and personality probably had more impact on the war than anyone outside Ho Chi Minh and the top brass in America.

Sheehan uses his own friendship with the man to vividly capture Vann's charisma and energy, his way of getting to the truth of the matter and inspiring other men.

Then Sheehan pulls the rug out from under our feet with the disclosure of the other side of Vann, one of deception and exploitation.

How much the two faces of Vann - the heroic and the self-serving - represent the U. While this was a fascinating insight into the war Sheehan experienced, and a compelling biography of a tragic person, I'd hesitate to give it full marks as a history of the war.

The author was too deeply involved in much of the story he covers, from his friendship with Vann in the early days of America's involvement, to the run-ins he and his friend David Halberstam had with the American authorities.

I can't shake the feeling I need to read more on the subject to correct for Sheehan's personal bias - moreso than is typical in the histories I read.

Dec 01, John rated it it was amazing. I don't know of many books that win both the Pulizer and the National Book Award. Sheehan's book is one of them, and it shows.

An entirely engrossing narrative of the profound arrogance, paralyzing complaisance and careerism, and the incorrigible, altogether impenetrable ignorance of Americans in Vietnam.

Generals Harkins and Westmoreland seem to have been the two most seriously impaired of the bunch. And as a result millions died. But then again we have Obama and McCrystal now.

So maybe this blinding hubris is part of the American character - at least until we spend ourselves into oblivion. It appears that we now have the opportunity to consider Vietnam II - of particular interest, I hope, to those too young to have seen the "prequal.

The self-destruction of presidents is always amusing to watch, and the volumes of history that follow make great reading. Shelves: history , modern-culture , challenging-ideas , asia , usa , war-history , vietnam.

The Vietnam War is one of the most important events in modern history. This is one of the many books written about it. The amount of detail is staggering.

The research that went into this one book must fill a small library with notes, clippings, photographs, references, biographies, maps and more.

Take for example the first day in the Army of the central character in the book - John Paul Vann. This occurs on page in my copy. He was made to shed his civilian clothing, including his underwear, and handed Army khaki and olive green; his head was shaved; he was given another medical examination to verify that he had been telling the truth when he signed his arrival statement; and he was revaccinated for smallpox and vaccinated typhoid and tetanus.

My edition is pages, not including Maps, Source Notes, Interviewees section, bibliography and Index. Among the facts is the information that the war was partially caused by nepotism, corruption and cronyism based on the Catholic religion.

The French colonialism established a Government where you had to be a Catholic or give acceptance to the religion to get promoted or achieve a position.

This aspect of the conflict was totally downplayed by the Western news media, which adds another side to the story. The so called "Domino theory" of Communist take over that was meant to justify the USA involvement has proved to be a sham.

Vietnam held suspicions about it's allies in Russia and China and is now a thriving economy based largely on free market ideas. Tourism to Vietnam is a multi-million dollar a year business.

Nobody in the USA has been held to account for involving millions of US troops and at a cost of hundreds of thousands dead. The toxic poisoning of vast areas of Vietnam has caused birth defects, and the contamination will take generations to clear up.

I started reading this today while waiting in the long line at the polling booth; I thought it entirely appropriate on election day to begin reading a book about a war and the conflicting policies that got us into it and kept us in it, since all the hubris and misguided do-goodery and righteousness that got us into Vietnam is of the same ilk as has gotten us into the current mess.

The book centers on one man, John Paul Vann, who believed in waging the war insofar as America is right and good and does right by the native population to whom we are supposedly aiding in improving their lot.

The book is about his conflict with the realpolitik of the powers-that-be that led to scorched earth and loss of hearts and minds.

The book begins with Vann's funeral, attended by people who remained his loyal friends even as they had clashed over policy.

Vann, it seemed, wanted America to be not just committed to victory when waging war, but to be consistent in its philosophical and humane concerns.

Napalm and torture prisons bridge the gap of immorality between Vietnam and the current wars; Vann thought we were better than that. But like I say, I've only started reading this; I've gleaned much already in Neil Sheehan's first chapter.

I was reluctant to start this one, at least now, since I had only read Stanley Karnow's massive "Vietnam: A History" less than a year ago, and didn't feel like spending so much time on the same topic.

There's a lot of other history I want to tackle. But it looks like I'm in for the long haul with this plus pager.

Will report back when I know more Apr 13, Conor Ahern rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook , history , politics. Well, I finally finished this beast last night, and with it my sudden interest in anything and everything Vietnam War.

But I never really found that borne out. Not because Vietnam wasn't awful, but because I don't think it's really fair to the victims of a longer history to say we had some claim on moral probity before that.

Unfortunately, this book did not really go into that much, ending pretty abruptly for a page book with the death of JP Vann, its protagonist.

But I will continue to try to locate the germ of modern conservative thought in this era. Jun 27, Betsy rated it liked it.

This was one of the first books I read about Vietnam, and that was years ago. I suspect that should I read it now I would give it more stars.

It seems hard to believe that the Vietnam War, which played such an important in my young adulthood, has now been over for over 40 years. Also, "the domino effect" of losing the war never occurred.

Unfortunately, we still have not learned all the lessons that war could teach us. View all 3 comments. This book is powerful, intelligent, poignant -- in listening to it I found myself more than once shaking within.

The tragedy described in the brilliant narrative lives with us still. Jun 19, David rated it it was amazing Shelves: light-orange-band. Sheehan's " Vietnam" is certainly no disaster.

Sep 11, Jeff rated it liked it Shelves: biographies , war-history , non-fiction , politics. After absorbing this book I'm mentally exhausted from the sheer size and scope of the information contained in it.

It was mind numbly daunting undertaking. As much as I liked parts of it others became extremely taxing and confusing to follow.

While I enjoy books with military engagements the endless stream of them, the personnel involved and the political intrigue around each of them in this one should have been significantly edited or removed altogether.

The same goes for some of the sections of After absorbing this book I'm mentally exhausted from the sheer size and scope of the information contained in it.

The same goes for some of the sections of the story that detailed the corrupt and bureaucratic mess of the leadership of the South Vietnamese Army and government.

He documents the complete history of Vietnam from its origins before the war all the way up to its climax in the mid 70's. Sheehan does an excellent job of weaving the Vietnam narrative around the life of John Paul Vann.

From his humble and troubled beginnings Sheehan tells his life story in incredible detail. Vann was one of the first military advisors sent to Vietnam before America committed combat forces and engaged in full scale war.

He learned immediately that any attempt by the US to commit American troops to the war on North Vietnam was going to be a very bloody, expensive and risky affair.

As early as he was preaching that the sole responsibility for the military action taken there should be executed by the Army of South Vietnam alone.

He had powerful friends in the military and in government that he tried repeatedly to convince that the key to success there had to be tied to humanitarian, social and political change not just a military success.

He didn't succeed at stopping the escalation of the War in the slightest but tried to work inside the framework of it to instill change.

Later you learn how his position shifted and how it changed and then ended his life. I have mixed feelings of the Vann the man with boots on the ground fearlessly and tirelessly trying to help the South Vietnamese cause and Vann the man in his personal life.

I respect and admired his passion, commitment and work ethic but was completely disgusted about how he conducted himself with his wife and family and in his personal affairs.

His professional service in Vietnam was Heroic but by his own choice his personal life was a disaster and a disgrace. His life was a tragedy and a triumph but a very interesting one to say the least.

I learned more about the Vietnam War from this book than any other single source I've researched so far.

Sadly though there were episodes of the war I wish hadn't learned about too. Oct 14, Kat M rated it it was ok Recommends it for: people who enjoy reading about military strategy.

I learned an awful lot about the Vietnam war. I enjoyed the political history of the war and the more biographical sections of the book. But, overall, the book was way to detail-oriented and focused on military conflicts and strategy for my taste.

I was a little bothered by the hagiography feel the book had. John Vann was pretty despicable in my view as a person, but the author is willing to make excuses for him.

To be sure, he had a bad childhood - a fascinating read in the rubber-necking at a I learned an awful lot about the Vietnam war. To be sure, he had a bad childhood - a fascinating read in the rubber-necking at a car wreck kind of way - but an adult is still responsible for his disgusting behavior.

I also did not find John Vann's insights into how the war ought to be fought very compelling. He came across as someone who needed to be in control, so, whether it was a more practical or winnable strategy or not, it just had the fell of central planning to me.

He saw the criminal behavior of both American and South Vietnamese soldiers towards Viet Cong and civilians and failed to recommend the simplest, most humane, solution - get the military out of the situation.

However, as someone who was not alive during this war, the book provided me with a much better timeline of how the war started. The author includes the pre-history of the war - the politics and conflicts in Vietnam of the 40's and 50's.

To be sure, there was some "mismanagement" of the war, which seems to be the author's primary point. But this seems inevitable when there was no justifiable reason for the war to begin with.

Although I don't think this was the author's intention, I did learn exactly how unjust the Vietnam War was. The Vietnamese were a people who had been subject to the rule of invaders for decades.

The Communism of the North was not ideological Communism at all, but they used the Communist movement of China to gain support for their opposition to colonial rule.

The Viet Minh were only aiming at independence and if the French, and later the Americans, had just allowed the Vietnamese to self-rule, it is unlikely that either full-fledged Communism or Civil War would have resulted.

The cost in human life of Americans and Vietnamese, both military and civilian, is disturbing and a testament to the terrible foreign policy of our leaders - right, left, or center.

Aug 07, Carol Storm rated it it was amazing. I picked this book up in a guest cottage on a New Hampshire vacation and could not put it down.

This book really reads like the great American novel, featuring a fascinatingly detailed character study of a tragic hero.

John Paul Vann is not a household name, but from the first pages you totally get why he is a metaphor for everything that America lost in Vietnam.

No I picked this book up in a guest cottage on a New Hampshire vacation and could not put it down. Not a general miles from combat, nor a scared kid trying to survive, but a seasoned officer who had already served 20 years before Vietnam began.

He sensed from the very beginning how wrong our strategy was -- but he never gave up on the goal. Leaving the army, he returned to Vietnam again and again as an adviser -- only to be killed in combat in the final days of the war.

He died a hero's death, and was mourned by hawks and doves alike as the last man of integrity in the Vietnam saga. That outline only hints at what an intriguing book this is.

Vann comes alive as a man on a quest, but along the way there's an unforgettable cast of characters and unbearably vivid writing about the combat in Vietnam and the suffering of the civilian population.

But even those classics can't match the scope and power of Neil Sheehan's masterpiece. This is more than history, this is truly epic literature! Aug 11, Don rated it really liked it.

Perhaps the most comprehensive book I have read about the largest cluster-feck I am aware of - The Vietnam War. What resonates most with me, is that the general tenor of this book, comports with the memories that my oldest brother, who served two tours in Vietnam as an Officer being Honorably Discharged as a Major , shared with me individually - before, during, and after that experience, paralleling his unique, distinct and personal recollections.

This is an important book about a time and place Perhaps the most comprehensive book I have read about the largest cluster-feck I am aware of - The Vietnam War.

This is an important book about a time and place that deserves to be understood, reevaluated and accurately restored.

The version of the Vietnam War recorded and portrayed in United States history books is quite at odds with the personal recollections and accounts of the heroic, honorable men that were actually in South-East Asia.

Many who survived the ground and air war, subsequently lost their lives, as did my brother, to exposure to Monsanto's Agent Orange.

This is a scholarly work, that intellectual people will recognize the importance of. Deservedly so, the author won The Pulitzer Prize for his authentic prowess.
